In a blockbuster announcement, “The Villain” Marty Scurll and top New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada have been confirmed for a major singles match at the upcoming ALL IN event on September 1st.
Both men have risen to the very top of the wrestling industry over the last few years, with Marty becoming one of Bullet Club’s most popular and most marketable stars worldwide, while Okada just finished up what many consider to be the greatest world title reign of the last 30 years, prior to dropping the IWGP Heavyweight Championship to Kenny Omega.
The Villain vs. The Rainmaker is the second bout officially confirmed for ALL IN, with Cody Rhodes vs. Nick Aldis for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship previously announced at a press conference held in Chicago earlier this year. However, part of the stipulation for that match was that Aldis refused to put the legendary “Ten Pounds of Gold” on the line against Cody also put the ROH World Championship up for grabs. With the “American Nightmare” losing his opportunity at last weekend’s ROH Best in the World pay-per-view, that confrontation is now up in the air.
